Apple is offering to repair broken power buttons on older versions of the iPhone 5.

The company announced Friday that a “small percentage” of phones built through March 2013 may have sleep/wake buttons that stopped working or don’t always work correctly.

Apple says it will replace the button free of charge on phones with qualifying serial numbers.
